New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) September 29, 2012
Deemed a “Superstar of Southern Art” in the March 2012 issue of "American Oxford," New Orleans painter Hayley Gaberlavage has joined the roster of entertainment and creative arts public relations firm Bats on Strings.
“I’m drawn to paint in two directions: towards a decorative, abstract world, where I explore my long-time infatuation with design, and toward sociological portraiture, where I draw upon innocent, irreverent youth and the blue collar Americana of my Alabama roots,” says Gaberlavage. “I’m excited to work with Bats on Strings to reveal my work to an even wider audience.”
Hayley’s figurative paintings capture the complexity and vitality of the American South and the characters that live in New Orleans. A self-proclaimed vagabond of the Deep South, her sentiment for bygone attitudes depicts the vibrant slow-pace of Southern afternoons. Preferring turquoise blues, olive greens, muted tones and unfinished background surfaces, her palette is distinct, vivacious and bold.
Gaberlavage’s technique of evaporating the background into swarthy brushstrokes allows time into the work and the acknowledgment of memory, which is imperfect, always unfinished, and congruous to the retro aesthetic and mood.
“We are beyond thrilled to be working with Gaberlavage,” says Bats on Strings founder Tiffany Napper. "Our boutique public relations firm focuses on helping films, musicians, artists and creative endeavors reach new heights."
Since its founding in January 2011, Bats on Strings has expanded its client base to include the talent of New Orleans artist Rebecca Rebouché, Yamaha Entertainment Group, Tipitina's Foundation, and the upcoming film "The Tell Tale Heart," among others.
